The firearm and ammo prices will go up, if we go into a buying frenzy like during the last presidential election. It is all about supply and demand. By the middle of 2009 a lot of the guns and ammo that were bought in the panic reappeared on the secondary market.
I have one more gun to buy before the election, and am flush with the ammo I shoot so I intend to wait it out. When the buying slows the sellers will again be competing for customers. When the sellers are competing the prices drop. Supply and demand.
The fear mongers keep saying that Obama, if reelected, will be personally coming for each and every one of our guns. If you remember 2008, that line will sound familiar. It didn't happen in 2009 and it won't happen in 2013, regardless of the election.
